      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Birthday Present

Recommended Posts

Had my favorite birthday present today - the time to go out and do something I enjoy without having to feel guilty about not getting my work done. Back to the grind tomorrow.

All images taken with the Canon 40D. The panoramas were taken with the 100-400L and the river shots were taken with the 17-40L.

Steve and I took a mid-day drive up the Fernberg to the Lookout Tower vista:

After work I headed down the Tomahawk to the Island River. A couple of panoramas while there:

"Manomin"

BD4-1.jpg

"Tammies"

BD3-1.jpg

Finally stopped at the Dunka River just before dark. Used a 4ND neutral density, 100 ISO, manual at f/20 and 13 seconds. NR on and MLU:

"Dunka River 1"

Enjoy, and thanks again to everyone who wished my a happy birthday!

By the way, the Fernberg Lookout and the Tammies were three photos stitched together, Manomin was four photos stitched together.

I knew that it meant wild rice (Ojibwe language), just wondering how the picture was tagged with that title??? I see the wild rice out there, just wondering who knew to call it manoomin is all. Nice picture.

Thanks again, all. Yakfisher, I waited almost 40 minutes for the sun to peek between the clouds to light up that shoreline with the dark clouds in the background. Worth the wait!

Manomin is also my favorite. You have some nice dynamic range with the light hitting the trees and the skies behind them being darker.
